Santonio Holmes out, Stephen Hill probable for MNF
Barring a setback, it appears Stephen Hill (concussion) will face the Falcons.
The Jets receiver reportedly practiced Saturday without his red non-contact pinnie and is listed as probable for the Jets Monday Night Football game against the Falcons.
As expected, veteran receiver Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is out. So, too, are rookie cornerback Dee Milliner (hamstring) and rookie left tackle Oday Aboushi.
The addition of Hill would be a big positive for the Jets, who added 6-5 wideout David Nelson on Tuesday for depth. But fellow receiver Clyde Gates and tight end Kellen Winslow are both questionable. Meanwhile, running backs Mike Goodson (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (hamstring) are also probable.
So are S Antonio Allen (finger), G Willie Colon (elbow), LB Quinton Coples (ankle), CB Antonio Cromartie (hip), DT Kenrick Ellis (back), LB Garrett McIntyre (shoulder), DT Sheldon Richardson (shoulder), QB Geno Smith (ankle) and CB Darrin Walls (shoulder).
